Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark)

WTA New Haven Open at Yale Tennis Betting Info
There is a big chance of an historic five-peat happening in the WTA this week, that is because former World Number One Caroline Wozniacki is gunning for her fifth straight title here. The Danish starlet has dominated the event recently, and is back as one of the main highlights of the tournament for 2012. This will be the final preparations ahead of the action at Flushing Meadows next week and the 2012 US Open. So there is only four of the top ten players in the world in attendance this week at New Haven. Still, there are plenty of good betting opportunities out there to take advantage of.

WTA New Haven Open at Yale Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Caroline Wozniacki, as we have touched upon is the defending champion here, however, she is going to be a long way from being the favourite. Which is strange considering her track record at the event. Why is that? Well it is because the former world number one has been a long way short of her best this year. She has had promising runs, like her recent semi final in Montreal where she pushed hard against eventual winner Petra Kvitova, but then she followed it up with a routine round of sixteen defeat in Cincinnati last week. So she has not looked close to a title since her runner up effort at Copenhagen back in April. That was a long time ago. Her defence is not what it was, she is perhaps burned out a bit and not looking supremely confidence as she did when she was on top of the world. Still, if a title is going to come her way this year, with her track record, you would assume that her best chance will be here. She is trading around 3/1 at online betting exchange BetFair. 

WTA New Haven Open at Yale Tennis Betting Favourite
Petra Kvitova has been making a welcome return to the WTA spotlight. After scrapping it out with Na Li for the title in Montreal, she went straight through to the semi’s of Cincinnati last week. Good to see her back on her game and a much stronger prospect here really than Wozniacki. Kvitova has had a tough year, but she has shown some resilience in getting back to the kind of form she was in twelve months ago. It’s been hard work, but she has been putting in the hours and it is paying off again and could be just peaking at the right time to take on the US Open at Flushing Meadows next week. Kvitova is in good shape at the moment, serving well and has the power to go all of the way here. Kvitova is trading at a price of 2/1 with online betting exchange BetFair. 

Other Contenders
Great field out this week, despite only four of them being from the top ten. Agnieszka Radwanska is one of those from the top ten, but is just struggling to find that ruthless edge at the moment. She isn’t one of the biggest hitters and just looks perhaps as if she is running out of a bit of steam after such a long season. She is bursting with class though and after a disappointing couple of weeks she will be keen to get her touch back ahead of the US Open and that could just make her a danger here in the field. She goes as top seed and the number three in the world wouldn’t hit Kvitova until the final itself.

Italian Sara Errani had a phenomenal season on the clay court swing of the season, picking up four titles. She is a really scrappy little player and this isn’t too difficult of a field for her to conquer. Confidence shouldn’t be a problem for her really, the only question is over her surface ability. She is immense on clay, but has taken a while to transition back to the hard court where she is less comfortable. Still, is she gets into gear, could make an interesting challenger.

Marion Bartoli is just tempting to have a punt on. The Frenchwoman had a tremendous season last year, but has been struggling with injury and therefore maintaining her status. There were signs in July that she was back on the right back, making the quarters of Stanford and then the final of Carlsbad. She hasn’t matched up well against the big guns this season, but this is not an overly competitive field so she could string a run together. Not too bad of a shout really and could run into Errani at the quarter final stage.

Dominika Cibulkova will be one to watch out for as well as she is in decent shape and goes as sixth seed. She is in the loaded top half of the draw where Wozniacki, Radwanska and Maria Kirilenko are all residing. She won in Carlsbad ahead of the Olympics and had to retire with an injury concern from Cincinnati last week. She came through her New Haven first round match though and there is tough draw ahead of her. Dangerous outsider if she is fit.

Best Outside Bet
Young German starlet Mona Barthel is in the mix and could be a threat to Radwanska in the top quarter of the draw. Barthel is one of the best young players on the WTA Tour and very well likely be the next big thing in a couple of years. Has tasted victory on the WTA this season already and took out the experienced Daniela Hantuchova in the first round here. Probably the most dangerous floater in the field. Barthel is trading at 37/1 with online betting exchange BetFair.

WTA Western and Southern Open Winner Tennis Betting Info
The WTA Tour stars will next be focused on the US Open which starts later in the month. So these tournaments over the next couple of weeks are going to be big preparation events ahead of that. Your tennis betting this week is held out in Cincinnati, which is a joint event for both men and women. There are a decent crop of big names out in force, despite almost overlapping with Montréal which had a Monday finish with the women’s event. Where is plenty of good value around this week, in a competitive field all queueing up behind Olympic gold medal winner Serena Williams.

WTA Western and Southern Open Winner Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Russia’s Maria Sharapova
overcame Jelena Jankovic in Cincinnati 12 months ago, in an epic marathon final. However the Russian tennis queen, who picked up a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics is not back to defend her title this week.

WTA Western and Southern Open Winner Tennis Betting Favourite
Serena Williams, without much surprise is trading as favourite in WTA Cincinnati betting. The American will be looking to settle down back onto the hard-court ahead of the action to come at Flushing Meadows for the US open. Williams is on a run of 17 straight wins, collecting the titles at Wimbledon, Stanford and then at the Olympics. At the London 2012 games, she destroyed top rivals Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka. However, Williams has an odd history in Cincinnati because she has never made it to the final of the event. Williams is just looking very powerful at the moment and will be expected to at least book herself a place in the semifinals again. There could be a quarter-final match-up against Germany’s in form Angelique Kerber. However with a form of Williams at the moment proving unbeatable over the last three events she has entered, the American star is simply trading as a strong favourite in the tennis betting this week.

Other Contenders
The Czech Republic’s former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova will bring some confidence with her to Cincinnati after a run to the final in Montréal for the Rogers cup. It has been quite a while since we have seen Kvitova really pushing hard for titles, but there have been many positive signs over the past few weeks that she is getting somewhere near her very best. She has had a quiet, understated and patchy season, not helped by injury, but in Canada she looked to be moving much more freely and striking the ball with much better timing than she has for a while. With the draw set out in front of her, considered the should easily make the quarter-finals. However you have to weigh up the fact that she played the final of Montréal on Monday so tiredness could be an issue with her. She would run into Caroline Wozniacki at the quarter-final stage and then most likely Serena Williams in the semifinals. Williams is trading as strong 4/5 favourite with online bookmaker Bet Victor.

Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska will be looking to close the gap on world number one spot with a good performance this week. After a surprise first-round exit at the Olympics, Radwanska bounced back to reach the quarter-finals of Montréal last week. However she ran into China’s Na Li who was in blistering form, and Radwanska only managed to take three games off her opponent in that match. However both of them had already played a match earlier in the day before they had their coming together, so it is hard to read a lot into it. Radwanska has been one of the most consistent performers on the WTA this season and is due a good run at a final. Radwanska has good looking draw, with only Na Li to really concern her in her quarter of the draw, but the Polish star should be a lot fresher of the two.

Because of her form in Montréal for the Rogers cup, China’s Na Li deserves to be taken into consideration. The thing is with Li so she can be patchy with her form. But when she is on song she has explosive with her flat ball striking, which suits the hard-court very well. But like Petra Kvitova, Na Li’s success in Montréal in reaching the final may come back to have a detrimental effect on her run at Cincinnati this week. However there is not too bad of a draw in front of her, but may have to go through Marion Bartoli and Agnieszka Radwanska to make the final. That could be a bit of a tall order this week.

Denmark’s former world number one Caroline Wozniacki needs to be mentioned as well after raising her game at the Rogers cup in Montréal last week. Wozniacki, who has been having a difficult and indifferent 2012 reached the semi-final in Montréal and lost in three sets to Petra Kvitova. But there were some good positives from her run, as we saw her dig deep and not get bullied around like she has done this season. Wozniacki goes in Petra Kvitova’s quarter of the draw, which means that there will probably be a semi-final match-up against Serena Williams should she get that far. With Williams’ dominance in the game at the moment, a semi-final appearance this week as well from Wozniacki would be a pretty good triumph for her.

Best Outside Bet
There are a couple of interesting outside bets to have a look at, and you would normally start with Germany’s Angelique Kerber. However because she is in Serena Williams’ quarter of the draw that will put the German star at a disadvantage. So some attention may be due to French star Marion Bartoli, who reached the final of Carlsbad in July. She is in the top two for the US open series rankings and she was undone by Petra Kvitova in the third round of the Masters cup last week. There should be more to come from the scrappy, bouncy Bartoli though. She is in a position to capitalise on Na Li’s tiring run to the final Montréal, which could leave just Agnieszka Radwanska in her way in reaching the semi finals. Bartoli is trading at a price of 50/1 with online bookmaker Bet Victor.

Maria Sharapova

WTA Montreal Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Info
Big post-Olympic tennis tournament as some of the top players on the Women’s circuit leave London to head to Montreal for the lastest edition of the Rogers Cup. This is part of the US Open series, and only Wimbledon and the US Open have a deeper, richer history than this tournament. This is a Premier Tier event on the WTA circuit, which means that there will be plenty of stars out in force, and we even get to have a look at two recent Olympic medallists.

WTA Montreal Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Serena Williams took the Rogers Cup title last year, however, the recent double gold winner at the London 2012 Olympics is not in attendance this year.

WTA Montreal Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Favourite
With Williams out of the picture, that leaves Belarus star Victoria Azarenka as the betting favourite. Williams crushed Azarenka, the current world number one in the semi finals of the Olympics, but Vika did bounce back to grab the bronze medal with a win over Maria Kirilenko. She also struck gold in the mixed doubles with partner Max Mirnyi so her confidence shouldn’t be too dented. Azarenka has four titles to her name this year, including the Australian Open, but after blitzing all before her at the start of the season, she has found the going harder as the season has worn on. The last time she tasted victory was back in March at Indian Wells. Nothing wrong with her game really and has a decent enough track record to have a good go at things in Montreal, as she has been a three time semi finalists of the Rogers Cup. If she gets her powerful all round game going then she should be in the final four at least. Azarenka is trading as 3/1 favourite with online bookmaker Stan James.

Other Contenders
Maria Sharapova will want to shake off the nightmare that beset her in the final of the Olympics, She managed to take just one game off gold medallist Serena Williams in terribly one sided match. That was a big shock because Sharapova is usually full of power herself, but neither she nor Azarenka was able to event make a dent in Williams’ defences at the Olympics, with the American just about being unplayable Still, Sharapova gained the silver medal in her Olympic début and there is some good incentive for her this week. Sharapova is close to Azarenka in the world rankings, and the 2012 French Open Champion could gain the number one spot this week. The Russian’s best finish at the Rogers Cup was a runner up back in 2009, and while this is a decent field, her power behind her first serve as well as her defence should get her deep into things this week.

Poland’s Agnieska Radwanska is trading well and that is because she should be really well rested. She was shocked in the first round of the Olympics as she went down in the first round against Germany’s Julia Goerges. Was expecting a lot more from the Pole who has been one of the best and most consistent players on the WTA this season. She sounds confident enough and will be happy to get back on hard courts. She has three titles on the WTA Tour this season, two of them having come on the hard court. Definitely a big threat and will want to prove herself after her the Olympic disappointment, especially after having made it to the final of Wimbledon prior to that.

Germany’s Angelique Kerber is still just about the hottest ticket on the WTA at the moment, and she had a good run tot he quarter finals of the Olympics where she ran into Azarenka in a tough match. But the German star has wrapped up two Tour titles this year and is ranked 7th in the world. She has had a tremendous season really and holds a 48-14 match record for the season heading to Montreal She has a pretty comfortable draw as well which she should capitalise on. Dominika Cibulkova finally made the breakthrough for the season that her potential has warranted. She went all the way in Carlsbad taking the title, but suffered a shock defeat in the first round of the Olympics. She’s better than that and could bounce back. Petra Kvitova slowly looks to be getting back to her best and she is in the field as well.

Best Outside Bet
Sara Errani, going as eight seed has had a tremendous season. She recently arrived in the top ten after picking up four titles on the clay court swing of the season. That is her best surface, but she has an OK 11-7 season record on the hard court. The diminutive, plucky Italian doesn’t have a big serve and that’s why she likes slower courts. Shouldn’t be too much to trouble her on the way to the quarter finals though and she is a real fighter. Outside shot at 28/1 with online bookmaker Stan James.

Latest WTA Montreal Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Prices at Stan James
Victoria Azarenka 3/1, Maria Sharapova 7/2, Agnieszka Radwanska 9/2, Angelique Kerber 8/1, Petra Kvitova 16/1, Sam Stosur 18/1, Na Li 22, Sabine Lisicki 22/1

Andy Murray

ATP Toronto Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Info
With the Olympic Tennis tournament done and dusted, with a wonderful home soil win for Britain’s Andy Murray over Roger Federer, three of the four semi finalists will be straight back in action this week at the Rogers Cup. So it is off to Canada for the next leg of the ATP Tour and this is the sixth of nine World Tour Masters 1000 events on the calendar. In total, seven of the current world top ten are going to be competing at the Rexall Centre. So it is going to be an interesting week ahead to see if anyone is going to have any Olympic hangovers. The last five World Tour Masters 1000 events have been won by either Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal.

ATP Toronto Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Favourite and Defending Champion
Novak Djokovic is the defending champion of the Rogers Cup and he is back gunning for the defence of his title after surprisingly missing out on an Olympic medal. The Serbian was looking in good shape until he lost a thriller in the semi final against Andy Murray. There was a high level of ball retrieval between the two players, but Murray just had the edge on the day with some flawless tennis. Then Djokovic missed out in the bronze medal match as well, going down against big serving Argentinian Juan Martin del Potro. So if anyone in this Toronto field needs a bounce back performance this week it is going to be Novak Djokovic. He does go as number one seed with a 17-3 record at the event, and he is a two time winner here. There have been only two titles during 2012 for Djokovic, but he will look forward to getting back on the hard court. Novak Djokovic, who is probably going to be the hungriest man in the field. He is trading as 2/1 favourite with online bookmaker Bet365 this week.

Other Contenders
Andy Murray. Will he have the Olympic hangover. What a week it was for him back at Wimbledon. He is going to be the biggest threat to Djokovic in Toronto and while the gold medal should really propel his career forward now in that search for the elusive Grand Slam title, he could be excused for not going all the way here. It was an emotional high for him in taking the gold, so it is going to be tough to pick himself back up to competitive level. A certain degree of weight of expectation must be off his shoulders. Murray goes as second seed in tennis betting this week and he has good form at the event as well. He lifted the title in 2009 and 2010 and is on the opposite end of the draw to Djokovic, so those two coming together will be the projected final. Murray has Canadian star Milos Raonic and John Isner in his quarter, with last year’s losing finalist Mardy Fish and Tomas Berdych possible semi final opponents. A good chance to build on his Olympic success but trading at 3/1 with online bookmaker Bet365.

Frenchman Jo Wilfried Tsonga will bring his busy, competitive game to Toronto. Tsonga is in the top half of the draw, which suggests that he will have to get past Novak Djokovic at the semi final stage. Tsonga lost out in straight sets against Djokovic at the London Olympics, as he was outclassed and overpowered by a dominant Djokovic. The Frenchman has the ability to raise his game on occasion and really push the big four hard. Sadly it doesn’t happen often enough and how easily he was brushed aside by Djokovic at Wimbledon suggests that he won’t go all the way. An outside shot.

Juan Martin del Potro will have had mixed emotions walking away from the London 2012 Olympic Games with a bronze medal around his neck. The powerful Argentinian was involved in the longest ever Olympic match against Roger Federer in the semi finals. The final set just went on and on and on, and all credit to Del Potro who really was looking to take the game to Federer, but just couldn’t convert his chances against the world number one. The former US Open champion looked good though and although it was a disappointing manner in which to go out after such an epic match, he should take heart that he punched pound for pound with the best in the world. Del Potro goes in Djokovic’s quarter and a meeting between those two this week would truly be fascinating

Best Outside Bet
Canada’s own Milos Raonic, the youngster with the monster serve. When Raonic gets his power game going, he is pretty hard to stop. Some of the big names in the world have found that out already this season. Has only been seeded sixteenth, which puts him on course for a quarter final match with Andy Murray, which means that if Murray is still celebrating his Olympic win and isn’t focused, then Raonic will be the biggest benefactor. Raonic has two tour titles this year.

Latest ATP Toronto Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Prices at Online Bookmaker Bet365
Novak Djokovic 2/1, Andy Murray 3/1, Jo Wilfried Tsonga 7/1, Milos Raonic 7/1, Juan Martin del Potro 8/1, Tomas Berdych 10/1

Sam Querrey (USA)

ATP Farmers Classic Tennis Betting Info
The Olympics will be interrupting the couple of ATP Tournaments that there are this week, with all of the big guns resting up ahead of making their appearance at London 2012. Not to worry, there is still some good ATP tennis betting to look at and enjoy for now though, as the next instalment of the Emirates Airline US Open Series continues in California this week. We are in Los Angeles for out tennis betting this week, and the tournament is the longest running annual professional sporting event in the city.

ATP Farmers Classic Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Ernest Gulbis won here last year but instead of coming back for the defence of his title this week, has decided to stay in Europe and play in ATP Kitzbuhel instead. So there won’t be a defending champion in Los Angeles this week.

ATP Farmers Classic Tennis Betting Favourite
American Sam Querrey is the favourite in the City of Angels this week, as he is lining up a shot at his third title here. He won back in 2009 and 2010 so has a strong track record here. He goes off as number two seed here, but Querrey does have a 10-2 match record for the event and is the only player in the field who has tasted victory here before. So plenty of reasons to get behind him and back him for a triple. Querrey is floating down in the fifties in the rankings, but is one of those decent journeymen who can turn up and produce a title. He has won already this year, on the clay in Sarasota, Florida, and his most recent best effort was a run to the semi finals of Queens ahead of Wimbledon. He did bit the highly ranked youngster Milos Raonic at Wimbledon before losing to Marin Cilic in the third round. Looks the strong name in the field to catch.

Other Contenders
Xavier Malisse is back in Los Angeles for the ninth time. So he has plenty of experience here but only holds a 7-8 record. Still, you have to weigh up the quality of the overall field on this one, and see that the Belgian makes a decent runner for the title. He isn’t on too bad of a stretch of from either. He reached the quarter finals at Queen’s, the semi finals at s-Hertogenbosch and the fourth round at Wimbledon So could be carrying a good bit of momentum into this one.

Frenchman Nicolas Mahut is another one of those solid journeymen who you just never know when he will produce something. Has a 14-13 match record for the season, which clearly isn’t fantastic, but again, this is not a high quality field at all. No spectacular form from him, but his world ranking of 66 makes him one of the highest ones in the tournament. So that may be a reason to have a look at him. You may remember him from Queen’s this year when he beat Andy Murray in the second round.

Brian Baker. Have to have a look at Baker who is making his first ever appearance at the Farmers Classic in Los Angeles. We have just been seeing a bit more of this man in the tennis circles this year, and he really came to light at Wimbledon when he reached the fourth round. Baker has also finished up as runner up in Nice this season. Didn’t get going in Atlanta last week, so will be hoping for a bit of a bounce back on the west coast this week.

Best Outside Bet
Number one seed for the Farmers Classic is going as our best outside bet. You are not going to see that happen very often, but it is Benoit Paire who fills the slot this week. This is his début in Los Angeles, but his highlights of the season were a semi final appearance in s-Hertogenbosch and then a runner-up in Belgrade. Has only hit the second round in his last two events, but they were both on clay.

Latest ATP Farmers Classic Tennis Betting Prices at online bookmaker Bet365
Sam Querrey 9/4, Nicolas Mahut 9/2, Xavier Malisse 15/2, Benoit Paire 8/1, Brian Baker 9/1, Marinko Matosevic 14/1

Mardy Fish (USA)

ATP BB&T Atlanta Open Tennis Betting Info
It’s another busy week on the ATP with three more events running this week, and out in Atlanta, Georgia there is a good crop of American players all vying for the title. The Tour only moved back to Atlanta a couple of years ago, and on both occasions in 2010 and 2011 we had all American finals. The Atlanta Open is part of the Emirates Airline US Open Series and will give competitors another chance at a some good pre-Olympic Games warm up matches. Other ATP Tournaments this week can be found in Hamburg, Germany and Gstaad, Switzerland. None of the big guns are out this week, leaving evenly matched fields around for your tennis betting.

ATP BB&T Atlanta Open Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Mardy Fish is gunning for a hat trick of titles at the Atlanta Open after winning it in the past two seasons. Fish beat fellow American John Isner on both of those occasions. So this is a tournament which Fish clearly enjoys and with the two main protagonists in the draw going to be kept apart until the final, there is likely to be a strong run from both of them again in 2012. Fish had a run to the fourth round of Wimbledon recently, which followed up on a quarter final run in Miami. There have not been any titles for Mardy Fish this season, and with a quiet season with just a 10-7 win loss record for the season. Still, with Isner being hit and miss, Fish should be a good contender. Mardy Fish is trading as 10/3 second favourite with BetFair this week.

ATP BB&T Atlanta Open Tennis Betting Favourite
John Isner goes as favourite in Atlanta, thanks to his title victory in Newport, Rhode Island last week. Isner took down Ryan Harrison and Lleyton Hewitt on his way to the title, and that was his first title of the season. Isner holds a 28-12 win loss record for the season and after making the final in the past two seasons, he will be pushing hard to get over the finish line this time around. Had a terrible exit in the first round of Wimbledon against Alejandro Falla, but his run in Newport was the first time that he really has impressed since back at the start in April in Houston. Still, he should have enough power to make it to the semi finals at least this week, and should be confident after last week.

Other Contenders
Andy Roddick, who has been the winner of at least one ATP Tour title for the past 12 years of his career, has his second attempt in Atlanta. Roddick won in Eastbourne ahead of Wimbledon, picking up his first title of the season, and he only has a 14-12 win loss record for the season, so it hasn’t been a stellar year for him. Still, you would expect him to go well in a field like this, as he is a top competitor Only made the third round at Wimbledon where he met David Ferrer, and lost in four sets. There have been some disappointing performances along the way for Roddick, but could still shine in Georgia.

Japan’s Kei Nishikori goes as third seed for the tournament in Atlanta, and put in a quarter final appearance at Newport last week. He was brushed aside by Juan Martin Del Potro at Wimbledon, and the Japanese star is still looking for his first title of 2012. Nishikori has put in a few good quarter final appearances throughout the season, and you would expect him to be at this stage for this week’s tennis betting action. He would run into Mardy Fish at the semi final stage if they get that far. Other decent names in the field are South African’s Kevin Anderson and home grown talents Ryan Harrison, Donald Young and Jack Sock.

Best Outside Bet
American Brian Baker has been putting in some impressive performances of late, and holds an 8-3 win loss record for the season. So his season has not been heavily involved on the ATP Tour this season, but with a record run to the final of Nice, France, where he lost to Nicolas Almagro, that followed a title on the Challenger tour in Savannah, Georgia at the end of April. A big outside shot, but look for him to impress and cause problems. Baker is trading at 22/1 with online bookmaker BetFair.

John Isner 9/4, Mardy Fish 10/3, Andy Roddick 9/2, Kei Nishikori 7/1, Kevin Anderson 15/2, Ryan Harrison 11/1, Brian Baker 22/1, Xavier Malisse 25/1, Gilles Muller 50/1

Carla Suarez Navarro (Spain)

XXV Italiacom Open Palermo Tennis Betting Info
The hard-court US swing of the WTA season is kicking off in California this week, but some of the players on the Tour have opted to stay in Europe. The Olympics will be coming up in a couple of weeks, but in between the thrills of Wimbledon and the Olympiad, there is still some good tennis betting around to enjoy. This is a clay court event and therefore you can look for some specialists to rise to the occasion. That is what makes this field, although not a particularly strong one in terms of ranking, very interesting.

XXV Italiacom Open Palermo Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Spaniard Anabel Medina Garrigues jumped to the fore as the WTA’s leading clay court title holder after winning here last year She beat out Polona Hercog last year and she was looking a pretty inspired player. She looked like she was enjoying herself here last year, and Garrigues is a clay court specialist and therefore makes for some good value in your Italiacom Open Palermo tennis betting. Strangely though we haven’t even seen the best of her on clay this season, making nothing better than the quarter finals She lost out in the second round of Wimbledon as well, and isn’t carrying great form. She will be happier with her game on clay, but the defending champion is trading out at 10/1 with online bookmaker Boylesports. However, she has won here five times before and holds a 32-3 match record in Palermo. Strong history.

XXV Italiacom Open Palermo Tennis Betting Favourite
Going as the favourite this week is diminutive Italian Sara Errani. Not only is she playing on home soil, and will have the crowds behind her, she has been phenomenal on clay this season. She really is the stand out player in the crowd and she has won here before as well. She lifted the title in 2008 and failed to defend her title losing in the final in 2009. What will make her a strong contender is that she notched up a fantastic 16 match clay court winning streak earlier in the season, and she made it to the final of the French Open at Roland Garros on clay. She goes at top seed in Palermo, but was destroyed in the third round of Wimbledon when she became the first woman in the Open era to fail to record a single point during in a set as she crashed to Yaroslava Shvedova. She’s better than that, way better than that on clay. Would face Medina Garrigues in the semi final.

Other Contenders
Germany’s Julia Goerges usually shows up well on clay because she has good footwork and the game suited to the red stuff. Huge potential but not quite consistent enough. She seems to be a big momentum player, so if she gets off to a strong start then she should be able to roll along nicely in Palermo. She is looking for a bit of form though, and she seems to be having difficulty stepping up a level to fulfil her potential. Lost in the third round of Wimbledon after allowing Ana Ivanovic to battle back and beat here. She however has a pretty good draw ahead of her and shouldn’t be challenged until the quarters. Decent chance.

Roberto Vinci, another Italian, small and powerful like Errani, makes for great value here. In the bottom half of the draw as second seed and like her compatriot, is superb on clay. She has also had a decent run to the fourth round of Wimbledon. However, she doesn’t have quite the potency of Errani but is still more than enough of a handful to make a strong charge here. The draw and the home support will certainly help her.

Best Outside Bet
Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro is the hit and miss outside bet for this one. A much better clay court player than on any other surface, and she did reach the final of Estoril earlier in the season on clay. Not too bad of a draw, but Roberta Vinci is a likely quarter final opponent. Needs to be at the top of her game, looks the best of the outside shots at a price of 10/1 with online bookmaker Boylesports.

Heather Watson

WTA Stanford Bank of the West Classic Stanford Tennis Betting Info
With the flourish of Wimbledon having passed us by, the next bit target on the list of the top tennis stars in the world is going to be the Olympic Games. Most of the big stars are taking a break after the SW19 Grand Slam action, and while the Olympics of course will be back on grass, the hard-court swing of the of US starts out in Stanford, California this week. Big history here as this is the longest running all-women tennis tournament in the world. There has been an illustrious list of winners here in the past and while the field is not all that deep this year, there are some good names to look out for.

WTA Stanford Bank of the West Classic Stanford Tennis Betting Favourite
Serena Williams beat Marion Bartoli here last year in the final, and here, fresh off her Wimbledon victory on Saturday, the American is back and gunning for more glory. There was a tougher field in operation here last year as well, but Williams powered here way through untroubled. She looks back to her dominant best, picking up her 5th Wimbledon title and now she has shot back up to number four in the world. Nothing too much ahead in the draw to worry about for her, so it may be a question of fitness levels after her long fortnight at Wimbledon. But her hitting power really get her out of most situations and anything less than a semi appearance at Stanford would go down as failure. Naturally she goes as favourite at a price of 3/4 with online bookmaker Bet Victor.

Other Contenders
Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli is a good fit for the tournament have been runner in 2008 and 2011, and having won the title in 2009. So she has good history here. The bubbly player, who is never short of energy, has had a very quiet season though. It looked as if last year she was just building up huge momentum to be a genuine Grand Slam contender as we was trading punches with the best in the game very well. However, that has all fallen a way a bit, not helped by injury and we just haven’t seen the clinical side of her for a long time, which is a shame because she is a quality player when she brings her A game. Has the game to hit the semi’s here, but confidence does not look too high.

Dominika Cibulkova hit the semi finals here last year and therefore will be worth a look. The young Slovakian was undone by Marion Bartoli there, but you would bank on her being the better player in California this week Had a surprising first round exit from Wimbledon which she will have been disappointed about, because she has been in good form this season. A very strong player and in another year or so, she should be a very solid top ten player (she is 13th in the world at the moment). She is growing all the time. The big problem for Cibulkova is that she will run into Williams in the semi finals, so that puts her at a disadvantage, but if Williams is suffering any tiredness and slips up, the Cibulkova should be the one to capitalise

Jelena Jankovic, like Cibulkova needs to pick herself up from a Wimbledon first round exit. Like Marion Bartoli, she has hit nowhere the kind of standards that she was in being a former world number one. The last 18 months or so haven’t been too good to Jankovic, but she has experience to call upon. She went to the final of Birmingham at the start of June in a similar quality field and being in the easier bottom half of the draw for Stanford, could have a chance to put a good tournament together. She should be well rested after her Wimbledon exit against Kim Clijsters.

Best Outside Bet
Heather Watson. Yes, going for the young Brit here who has reached a new ranking high of 79 after reaching the third round of Wimbledon. She is in the bottom half of the draw, and could end up with an easy run if Bartoli crashes early. A long shot to go all the way and win it, but could have a very strong quarter. All the way out 50/1, but look for a good couple of wins on her way to the quarters, where she could meet a below par Bartoli.

It is the old head of Serena Williams v Agnieszka Radwanska betting for the final of the Women’s Wimbledon draw on Saturday. Williams fired off a personal best of 24 aces to power her way past world number two Victoria Azarenka in the semi finals. Williams was in prime form throughout the first set, powering winners and barely putting a foot wrong. Azarenka fought back a little in the second, but the hard work which Williams has been putting in to get back to the top of her game looks as if it is paying off at the moment. The four time Wimbledon champion is now red hot favourite to power her way to another title, and that keyword is going to be power. When she is on song, highlighted by her great semi final show against one of the best players on the Tour, she is unstoppable because of the timing of her power. Although she has had her struggles against lower ranked players this season, when it has come to matching up against the best in the world, well it seems like those occasions are really what brings the best out of Serena Williams. This will be her 18th Grand Slam final, and she has taken the title on 13 of those occasions before.

The American will face off against Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska. This will be the world number three’s first ever visit to a Grand Slam final, and it is another big step forward in a fantastic season for her. The 23 year was the only player in the top fifteen women in the world to have never made it to the semi final of a Grand Slam before, so now she has set that record straight. She did a very solid job of beating one of the rapidly rising stars of the game, Angelique Kerber in the semi final, and it was a question of composure and control after a slowish start from the Pole. What Radwanska did well was keep her game together on the serve and she only played very smart, percentage tennis in keeping her errors low. There is an extra big incentive at stake for Radwanska, because if she wins, then she will be crowned the new world number one, while defeat will still give her her career high of number two ranking. Radwanska is going to need all of her intelligence and craft to take down Serena Williams, because there is going to be a bit of a mismatch in power.

For Serena Williams v Agnieszka Radwanska betting there isn’t much head to head to look at. The two women have only played each other twice before, and both times were wins for Williams way back in 2008. One of them was at the quarter finals at Wimbledon incidentally, when Radwanska was outside of the top ten players in the world. In terms of titles this year, Radwanska has won three compared to the two Williams has picked up. Radwanska has a 38/9 match record for 2012, while Williams has 27/3.
